Boutique apartments are becoming a popular choice for business travellers because it offers more amenities and features for the price. The value it brings is undeniable and for cost-conscious travellers like businessmen this is a benefit they will always want to take advantage of.
Serviced apartments offer bigger spaces compared to hotel rooms. In fact, most apartments have a separate living and dining area that can seat a small group.
The bigger space actually makes serviced apartments a good venue for small meetings. If you are going to hold a brain storming session, planning meeting or interviews then you can consider just doing it inside your serviced apartment. The welcoming and comfortable environment will put all participants at ease and the privacy means any important or sensitive information will not be overheard by anyone.
Here are some tips you can follow to prepare your serviced apartment for a meeting:
Consider the number of participants
Make a mental headcount of who will be participating in the meeting. Even though serviced apartment providers will not mind meetings done inside the apartments it is still a good idea to keep the group small – about four to five people – so that the participants are comfortable and you do not compromise space.
Always remember personal safety
You are still living in an unfamiliar place in another country – that is something you should always remember. Keep safety a priority. While it is okay to invite business associates or clients you’ve known for quite some time into your apartment, inviting a stranger is never a good idea. Remember this when you are planning to conduct an interview inside your apartment.
Keep the noise levels down
Serviced apartments are located in residential buildings and neighborhoods. Your meeting may be professional but sometimes the noise levels would still end up rising when you are discussing things animatedly.
Be a good host
You are hosting the meeting in your apartment – that is almost similar to hosting guests at your place. Make sure that they are comfortable and always serve refreshments like brewed coffee, sandwiches, cookies or juice. You can also use the kitchen and cook a simple meal that will impress your guests.
